In this talk (which was recorded as a dry run for a seminar) Rich presents a very brief introduction to the Python programming language from the point of view of someone wanting to perform data manipulation on geographic data. He outlines what a GIS is (essentially the meeting point between computers and map-making) and cover some issues to do with raster data on the Earth’s surface.
He covers the importance of choosing your sampling wisely, how to generate contoured heigh plots, faux 3d-shared relief maps, slope and aspect plots. Then there is a discussion about some simple de-noising strategies for freely accessible data and investigate a strange phenomenon in Oxfordshire.
Watch a demonstration of MEGA, an open-source, web-based geographic information system (GIS) developed by the Getty Conservation Institute and The World Monuments Fund to inventory and manage archaeological sites.
This is a brief 5-minute overview of the basic functionality of the system. Tutorial videos are available at megajordan.org.
Khaled El Emam discusses the challenges to de-identify complex data sets such as those containing longitudinal and geospatial information. The seminar begins with an overview of the type of data that we are concerned with and then explained why common de-identification methods will not work on these. This is followed by a demo of PARAT (version 2.3) showing how it can handle this kind of data. Dr. El Emam is a senior scientist at the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario Research Institute and the founder and CEO of Privacy Analytics Inc.
LiDAR-Online.com is a web platform to promote LiDAR data as well as, improving and making easier the access to this type of high accurate data for expert and non-expert users. This website follows a social network model, allowing users and providers to publish, obtain and manage online information, as well as, to interconnect the LiDAR community.
This video tutorial explains how to get ready to obtain benefits from the use of LiDAR on the Internet. This new, cloud-based service is designed to provide organisations with a central location for managing lidar, ortho imagery and geospatial data, while allowing users to view the point cloud data without the need for specialized software and knowledge.
This video shows how Enhanced Catalog Searching with Geospatial Technology applies geocoding concepts to catalog data in Library Cloud and then place the results on a map interface. Then the results are incorporated to enable more advanced geospatial analysis techniques such as proximity and density analysis to aid in the discovery of library resources.
Distributed Spatial Multi-Criteria Evaluation Web Application for Eye on Earth Summit with MDG & WGI by ForeStClimThursday, January 12th, 2012
The Interreg IVB program of the European Union has been funding this sub-project of the http://www.forestclim.eu/ project, for evaluation of climate change vulnerability and adaptation in different regions in Northwestern Europe.
This is the first (prototype) version.
